Synopsis

The author of The Wedding Date serves up a novel about what happens when a public proposal doesn’t turn into a happy ending, thanks to a woman who knows exactly how to make one on her own…

When someone asks you to spend your life with him, it shouldn’t come as a surprise–or happen in front of 45,000 people.

When freelance writer Nikole Paterson goes to a Dodgers game with her actor boyfriend, his man bun, and his bros, the last thing she expects is a scoreboard proposal. Saying no isn’t the hard part–they’ve only been dating for five months, and he can’t even spell her name correctly. The hard part is having to face a stadium full of disappointed fans…

At the game with his sister, Carlos Ibarra comes to Nik’s rescue and rushes her away from a camera crew. He’s even there for her when the video goes viral and Nik’s social media blows up–in a bad way. Nik knows that in the wilds of LA, a handsome doctor like Carlos can’t be looking for anything serious, so she embarks on an epic rebound with him, filled with food, fun, and fantastic sex. But when their glorified hookups start breaking the rules, one of them has to be smart enough to put on the brakes…

The Bad

From the first page I did not like this book but I thought it would get better.

The story wanted me to be on Nikole side about the proposal from the beginning but if I’m being honest I felt she was slightly in the wrong.  I came around after a while but *shrug* I just did not care

Nikole “Nik”, never did like her she just rubbed me the wrong way

I was so tired of talking about Fisher, the rejected proposal dude.

 Nothing happens= you would get chapters upon chapters with characters saying the same thing

 Forcedness

-diversity=I do not say this lightly, it just felt forced in the way that the characters were first presented

-feminism= Nikole

-relationship=No chemistry between the leads it all seemed like the relationship was in the beginning stages and not we are in love or even we really like each other. As a couple they were not cute or fun to read.

The Meh

There was some interesting events that acknowledged some of my issues  in  that I think should have happened earlier. It would have made the story better.

 

Finished a book off my romance tbr
